There’s nothing better than getting a fan of the show back on the program… but that fan also happens to be a master distiller at one of the most recognizable names in the kentucky distilling industry. Danny Kahn join us once again to talk about a few topics that we’re all interested in hearing about. We cover the 1792 barrel program, then we take a hard left turn talking about yeast for a bit, so if you love the science behind bourbon, make sure to pay attention. and we end up going through a tasting and talking about the 2022 release of Thomas S Moore, the brand Danny is in charge of releasing every year using extra aged barrel finishes. And when we say extra aged, we’re not talking aged for 6 months in an additional cask, we’re talking years!
